A mixed-use development will replace a stretch of small commercial buildings across the street from the eyecatching Emerson College building in Hollywood, according to permit filings with the Department of Building and Saftey.
The proposed seven-story, 45,000-square-foot building would rise at the northwest corner of Sunset Boulevard and Gordon Street, consisting of 63 residential units above retail space and a parking garage. City records also show that the proposed development also calls for a swimming pool.
Architecture firm Shubin + Donaldson is designing the project, which is atypical for most seven-story developments in that it proposes to use Type-1A concrete construction. Renderings show a contemporary building with a seven-story height profile along Gordon Street that tapers to a four-story profile fronting La Baig Avenue. Residential units and an amenity deck are situated atop two floors of above-grade parking.
In addition to Emerson College, the project site is located just west of the controversial Sunset Gordon tower, a 23-story building that was completed in 2014 by CIM Group. All of Sunset Gordon's 300 apartments - as well as an adjacent park that was built through the development - remain closed due to a lawsuit that invalidated the project's entitlements.
